Waste materials – catalytic opportunities: an overview of the application of large scale waste materials as resources for catalytic applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this overview, we present examples of the use of high volume waste materials in catalysis or for catalyst synthesis. Waste materials derived from both industrial and biological sources have attracted interest and this is briefly summarized. The materials described include red mud, aluminium dross, fly ash, blast furnace slag, rice husk and various kinds of shell.
